Published 11/19/2009, The Daily Republic
The 15-year-old female suspect in a Mitchell murder case was reported missing recently by her mother in Indiana, according to a police report. The 15-year-old, identified by investigators only as M.D., was arrested last week with Alexander Salgado, 20, for the Nov. 10 murder of Jasmine Guevara, 16, of Mitchell. The two, who came to Mitchell recently from Indiana, are accused of stabbing Guevara and cutting her throat, and then placing her body into a car in rural Mitchell and starting the car on fire. Court documents say they were motivated by M.D.’s jealousy over a developing relationship between Salgado and Guevara.Word count: 690
